I live in a spacious house in Walton on Thames with my husband and our son. Our son Matthew is seventeen and studying A Levels at Three Rivers Academy, Walton-on-Thames . Steve and I have been happily married for nearly 20 years.
We are located a short distance to both Hersham and Walton Railway Stations, and Walton town centre.
I have been an Ofsted Registered Childminder for just over 17 years. I am an accredited Childminder and have completed a Quality Improvement Award.
I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage learning goals and provide a written diary of the childs day. This includes photos at the end of the week.
I am a well established member of the local community and attend local playgroups , soft play, library and parks and visit my Childminding colleagues houses.
As a Childminder I feel it is a privilege to share the development of a child with their parents/carers. It is important to share information with parents to form a good partnership.
I regularly attend training and courses so I am up to date with all the information I require. These courses are either on line or at the weekends or evenings. So does not impact on my week of childminding.
Covid - 19. I would like to reassure any prospective parent reading this, that I have undertaken all the precautions required to make my setting safe during these worrying times of living with a pandemic situation.
My ofsted registration is EY250520.
I have been awarded by OFSTED 2 outstanding outcomes and 2 good outcomes in my childminding career.
Please message me with any questions.
I have had a huge amount of experience with children of all ranges up to teenagers. I obviously have my own son and also two step children, who are now adults and totally independent.
My experience includes, looking after babies from 3 months and through all the developmental milestones, crawling, walking, talking, toilet training, nursery attendence and starting reception and onwards through to starting Senior School.
I follow the Statutory EYFS framework. I help the children develop at their own pace, and by developmental planning, am able to help your little one achieve their ‘next step’ . I ask that parents are involved as much as I am, so we can work in partnership. Using tools from the EYFS and a personal diary to record your little ones adventures with me. To watch your little one achieve those milestones, is a wonderful thing.
I am a member of PACEY and have Public Liability Insurance with them.
I hold a 'clean' driving licence and my car is fully insured appropriate to my childminding business.
I love having children in my home. I do not feel like I am doing a ‘job’ . This is a vocation for me and I feel very privileged to share a little persons first years in their fabulous world of learning.
My family are also very supportive and welcoming to the families and children I mind.

I do not provide food and have space to store a ‘polite’ amount in the freezer, fridge, cupboard.
